Baby Otter Runs Aground

This little fellow was rescued by a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife officer after getting himself stuck in a retaining wall on Lake Union for five days. Orphaned, but otherwise in good health, he will overwinter at PAWS and be reintroduced to the wild next spring.

Samson Finds His Angel

Samson the Pit Bull couldn’t be happier after PAWS reunited him with his guardian, Angel. Samson had been missing for more than a year when PAWS staff took him in. A quick scan for a microchip brought up Angel’s information, and within hours the two were together once again! Last year PAWS returned nearly 500 lost animals to their guardians.

Safe and Sound

Ghandoon spends a little time getting to know her new guardians after being rescued from a shelter in Iran. This Anatolian Shepherd mix is one of two dogs taken in by PAWS after the Iranian government threatened a ban on companion animals.
